As 59% of employees in Singapore switched to default working from home and adapting to hybrid work models, mixed reactions arose due to the lack of having the right atmosphere and environment to work productively.
Alternating between now under-utilised physical offices and home makeshift workspaces, it has no doubt taken a toll on the majority's physical and mental health. A solution most people have turned towards is renting coworking spaces to help deal with various problems they face working from home.
A well-defined workspace includes having the right tools you need within an arm’s reach.
Stable high-speed wifi? Check.
Ergonomic chairs & spacious desks with fitted power outlets? Check.
Quiet, conducive environment for focused working? Check.
If coworking spaces are on your list to explore, these 5 advantages will definitely convince you to take up a membership plan to save yourself time and money, plus bonus opportunities for your business.
1. Reduced Business Expenditures
Renting a hot desk, dedicated desk space or a private office no matter for a small or big team can help save lots of money. Without fixed long term commercial leases, it frees up working capital as the money is not tied up in real estate costs. You can prioritise solely on doing business and using the spare budget for other expenses like manpower, advertising, or investments.
2. Less Office Space Maintenance
A coworking space accommodates you and your team’s needs. With built-in furniture like ergonomic chairs and spacious desks, storage spaces - pedestals and lockers, security system, printers readily available for use and more, it truly takes a load of responsibilities off you. Simply move-in without worrying about office maintenance, cleaning services, or other management issues as you can find almost everything covered.
3. Convenient & Strategic Locations
Enjoy the advantage of doing business in and around the central business district (CBD) or business hubs that’s convenient for hosting clients and surrounded by malls and public transportation. Having a professional business address can also compliment your brand and build a positive brand image.
4. Facilities & Motivational Spaces
Most coworking spaces have nicely decorated meeting rooms, conference rooms, and/or event spaces with equipment ready for members to use. Simply book it for your meeting any time through an application or inform the Community Executives (CE). With a dedicated CE at each space, you’ll enjoy their assistance to receive guests or phone enquiries.
In an open concept shared environment, there’s also plenty of discussion booths, breakout spaces that have whiteboards to accommodate collaboration and innovation. These great spaces are also ideal for events, company AGMs, workshops, and training sessions that often take place!
5. Business Networking Opportunities
To add, the open concept environment encourages businesspeople from various industries and backgrounds to connect. There’s ample opportunities to sit opposite a potential partner or investor in the space, and if your anchor location is different or you’re a virtual member, participate in the occasional (virtual and physical) networking events. You won’t want to miss out on these fantastic chances to grow your business contacts.
